YEI Technology's "suit" for real-time in-game motion capture to control your onscreen character blew us away when we saw it last year (video embedded below), and now there's a chance it will hit the consumer market, with a Kickstarter project under way to bring it to fruition.

Called PrioVR, it consists of a series of inertial sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes, and accelerometers) strapped to the player's body to provide "360 degrees of unfettered low-latency real-time motion capture without the need for cameras, optics, line of sight, or special environments." It captures motion data directly from the body and sends it wirelessly from one or more users, and it can be used in any environment, indoors or out. … Read more

Newbies who want to dip their toes in the GIF-creation waters no longer need fancy image-editing software like Adobe Photoshop--a freeware app called GifCam lets anyone easily produce animated GIFs from on-screen activity, i.e. streaming videos, … Read more
